What is AD Academy?
A long-term strength and conditioning programme specifically supporting young people who love to move. We take a unique approach by incorporating the latest research in the youth athlete space into fun movement challenges, games and a mixture of traditional exercises which help our members become fitter, faster and stronger for their chosen sports.
Who is AD Academy for?
Individuals aged 8-18 who are keen to get support with their physical development through age-appropriate strength and conditioning training. Our coaches take into account growth and maturation at an individual level to ensure we’re providing training that is targeted to each member’s needs. Our sessions are open to all athletes from all sports and ability levels, so whether you’re just starting a new sport or pushing hard to reach the next level in a sport you’re passionate about, you’ll thrive at AD Academy.
When and where is AD Academy?
Our specialist coaches run sessions each morning before school at two locations. AUT Millennium in Rosedale and College Rifles in Remuera. We offer free trial sessions weekday mornings during school terms. Come see what we’re about with a one week free trial.
“We were impressed at the broad coverage of wellness that the Academy provided, looking at not one specific sport, but at the practical aspects of power, strength, nutrition, rehabilitation, balance and speed. Our kids are very different and thrive on their AD experience for different reasons. My 9-year-old loves the games and feels like he’s part of something special. My 12-year-old likes to set herself small challenges – usually around flexibility and balance, and she enjoys meeting those challenges. My eldest is almost 15 and has started to use the Academy time to grow her capability in her chosen sport – orienteering, with some sprint work, core strength training and remaining injury free. And our youngest joined early 2022!”.
